"A good performer bears her soul in an honest and engaging way. A great performer does it while making her audience feel like family. Make no mistake: Christi Chiello is a great performer. The champion of crowd work takes you through her personal saga of tempestuous lust, bizarre gigs and complex relations with Jesus. You'll be a happier person for seeing this show." - Time Out NY / click HERE for tickets!!

"Very Funny" - The NY Times
"Christi Chiello is someone who I always thought was really funny. I knew her through stuff she did on The Special, she did a bunch of stuff with Lorelei Ramirez who is also great. And then I saw her on Roast Battle and I was like Whoa, she's taking some of these dudes apart. That's always been a big indicator to me of when someone's about to pop out of NY is when they can do stuff as versatile as a one-woman show at Ars Nova but also go take on some aggressive dudes in a roast battle. That versatility always stands out." - Chris Gethard in VULTURE
